Union's splitboard range receives a makeover with a new name for its star binding. The Union Expedition splitboard binding has become the Union Explorer, and has been upgraded. For example, the spoiler adjustment system for climbing has been reworked to be more robust, the straps have been improved and the chassis has been given a new treatment that allows it to retain less snow. 

What is the programme of the Union Explorer splitboard bindings?   

The Union Explorer Splitboard Binding is very different from the competition. Beyond its price, which is much lower than the solutions offered by Karakoram, Plum or Rossignol, it offers a feeling very close to traditional snowboard bindings thanks to its plastic frame. It provides real riding comfort to those who fear the rigidity of aluminium frames. There is also a tonic but comfortable spoiler, which offers the necessary control without requiring any horsepower. Switching from one mode to another is done via a pin. The system works well, is simple to use, but can sometimes give you a bit of a struggle when ice gets into your gear. Rather light bindings, pleasant to ride, tonic for descents but comfortable for freestyle. This model is however not the most adapted for long outing, with a lot of mode changes (going up/down and vice versa), or in extreme weather conditions. 

Who is the Union Explorer Splitboard Mounting for?     

Accessible from the intermediate/confirmed level for snowboarders looking to learn splitboarding, this model will suit all those looking to regain the feeling of a traditional binding on their splitboard.
